Chargers Mourn Loss of the Great Chuck Muncie - Ricky Henne
“It’s a sad day,” said the former guard. “He was a fantastic individual. A great football player. The thing with Chuck was he was always a great prankster, but he was a great human being. He was just a fantastic person and a great, great teammate. He’ll be sorely missed

Ex-Charger Chuck Muncie dies at 60 - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
Chuck Muncie, a three-time Pro Bowl running back who set an NFL touchdown record with the Chargers, has died of heart attack at age 60, the Saints announced on Tuesday.

Torn ACL feared for Melvin Ingram - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
Outside linebacker Melvin Ingram injured his knee during the second day of organized team activities. A torn ACL is feared a "possibility," a source said, and the 2012 first-round pick is scheduled to receive further opinions.

Four Downs: AFC West - Mike Ridley
Kwame Geathers (Georgia) and Brandon Moore (Texas) are sure to help a defensive line that lost two of its three starters during the offseason. The former is a massive man who can handle the nose in the Chargers 3-4, while the latter could be a player at the five-technique. Jamarkus McFarland from Oklahoma also has the raw skills to also contribute along the front three.

Tom Telesco, Mike McCoy primed to revive San Diego Chargers - Adam Schein
In every possible way, Tom Telesco was the right guy at the right time. I love this move. When the Atlanta Falcons needed a major clean-up, Arthur Blank astutely unearthed Thomas Dimitroff, who had spent the previous six years in the player personnel department of the New England Patriots. Yes, Blank found the next great general manager by mining one of the league's elite teams. This is exactly what the Spanos family did with Telesco, snatching him from the Indianapolis Colts after 15 years of first-class service.
